IVY WROTE: I’d get attention from guys in their 20s and tell them, “Look, I’m not interested in adopting.”
TRAYCIE WROTE: My mom was (and still is) petite. We wore the same size when I was in high school in the early 1980’s. She used to pass really cute clothes or shoes over to me by saying “It’s too young for me”. Now, here in 2012, I find myself passing on some of the cutest clothes by saying “It’s too young for me”. Dammit!
This blog is my story, all over.
I am a Formerly Hot blonde..always the ‘pretty one’ in the family, never lacking for attention or dates. Fast forward…I’m now 42, mother of four blonde blessings, and yes….going through a totally-typical divorce. The funny thing is…during a fifteen-yr abusive marriage, I was brought so low that I had completely ‘let myself go’ (and I despise that saying!) Now that I’m free, I’m finally strong enough to take the time and effort to take care of ME…haircuts, highlights, tanning, whitening my teeth…and eating healthfully and exercising, of course. I had become so accustomed to being virtually invisible during my thirties that the scant attention I now still receive from men just absolutely floors me! Ah, it’s good to find that girl again. Yes, the men paying attention are my age or older, but that’s as it should be, and fine with me!
Ladies, you’re still hot…just hot now to a different demographic. Embrace it: it’s not gone! 🙂
